With its world-renowned collections of men's and women's fashion, Maison Givenchy has been sensuously reinterpreting the codes of elegance, sophistication, and femininity since it was founded in 1952.

Creation date: 1952

New elegance with a modern twist and femininity combine in the timeless world of Givenchy. Its style is the signature of Hubert de Givenchy, who established the eponymous Haute Couture House at the start of the 1950s. Combining finesse, discretion, and elegance, he ensured his designs and ateliers rose to the top and played a key role in international fashion. In 1957, an expansion of scope took place with the launch of the House’s first fragrance, L’Interdit – a symbol of the legendary friendship between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn. Ever since then iconic creations from the Maison have continued to cultivate elegance and boldness. Today, Givenchy’s legacy continues to move forward in a modern and powerful way.

Hubert de Givenchy was an ambitious visionary and was just 24 years old when he founded his Maison. He was able to predict the casual chic and democratization of luxury that would leave its mark on the 20th century and launched his 'séparables' - elegant blouses paired with light skirts. This was the start of his success.
